Aerotek Recruiter Review

1.0
Details
The recruiter who interviewed me ( meredith fulton) was so dumb she said I didnt have any formal hr background which is not even required because this job is sales based and has sales targets. And she herself doesnt have any formal hr or recruiting background and yet got her job somehow. Women like her are *** that dont want to see other people grow.

Aerotek hires fresh from college grads with no experience in recruiting. They are required to conduct 15 face to face interviews per week, whether they have a position or not.

Beware of the recruiter pressuring you for references, as they will contact them with a sales pitch, in order to build their own clientele. You needn't take my word for it, simply hop over to the Glassdoor website and read the reviews their current and former recruiters have revealed.

Stop waiting on Aerotek and find your own job. P.S.

Actually, a recruiter's job is not to keep responding to you, the applicant, but rather to attend to their clients (you know, the companies that are paying them).

Besides, why would you want to deal with this agency anyway? Read the reviews here.

Aerotek has a poor reputation. They are notorious for hiring fresh college graduates with zero recruiting experience and often no work experience at all.

I would never depend on some 22 year kid to help me achieve any professional goals. You are better off finding your own job.

My advice as a seasoned recruiter: don't pick up any bad habits from your co-workers; a real agency won't tolerate the sort of childish behaviour you described. After you have about 12 months or more experience, start looking for a position with a reputable agency.

Aerotek hires fresh from college kids, who most likely have no recruiting background whatsoever.

Aerotek is waste of time. The recruiter wanted to meet with me face to I drove all the way to their office and never heard back from there . Stay away from this company . Jobs they have are low end jobs. Go with otherrecruiting agencies.

The recruiters are required to have 15 face to face interviews with applicants, per week. You no doubt were one of the 15 for that week.

I'm in the same situation right now and am trying to leave and find a new job. Everything you said is correct!

I feel so bad reading about all the candidates that have had negative experiences. A lot of the openings we have fall through or the client says that they no longer need our services, and the account manager tells us to just forget the candidate and not call them :/

The scenario you described is very common with this company. I wouldn't work with or for them, for any amount of money.

I have principles. And morals.

Terrible agency A recruiter called to interview for a position on the very same day that i received a email from another recruiter telling me that i was not the right candidate for the job. Even more ridiculous , the interview was scheduled with the women who sent the email telling me they were considering me for the position.

Do not waste your time on this organization.
